Pie run Thursday 2nd & Friday 03-07-2015

Passing through Rangiora from Stratford today (03-07-2015) was the Graeme Prankerd Cessna 180B ZK-EEJ (c/n 50557)
It got a mention earlier at :-


Yesterday I spied this roadrunner at gate 16 Christchurch International Airport.
(Trying to get in - not out).
It is none other than the Piper PA-18-150 c/n 18-7709103.
This makes it ex S5-DAM all the way from Slovenia where it was with the Nova Gorica Aero Club and based at Bovec airfield.
 Below is a pic of it with glider tow rope attached at said field taken by Pirih Florijan in 2010.


  1. Dave how do you get so many great pic,s .?
    Nice one of the Cub complete ready to tow .

  2. EEJ remember when it arrived in Wairapa.Owner a MR Luyten.s.?Based on his home strip a bit south of Featherston late 70.s .Flew CJF in there.Did he fly it from Kenya,?.He later bought Taylorcraft BSW

  3. For a minute I thought "an Auster" as I's so used to seeing my bare frame with no fabric on it! Where is this going to be based?

  4. Yo there Baz.
    It is being recovered in the Aero Club workshop I believe for an owner at Omaka.
